Snakes and Ladders is a bold and powerful darkly comic drama about race identity and the testing of family loyalties partly inspired by real life stories and memories collected from black hairdressers in the South East.

Amma can't bear to relax, Kim loves being the one "blessed" with "good hair" and Sista is allergic to all forms of family life, Beyonce and any Timotei advert.

Each sister knows their place, that is until Simone comes along and suddenly no one knows who they are anymore.

Think Mike Leigh meets jerk chicken, this play will make you both laugh and cry, a must see.


Quotes and Interviews

“The show was brilliant...each character distinct and true. Each twist unseeable and devastating. Each laugh as true as each tear. Beautiful” Lemn Sissay
“ I loved it, I love the music and the comedy, I had no idea that theatre was like this ...I want to come back and see Snakes and Ladders every night.!” Shari Rogers
